Back when I worked in PR, I was on tv quite a bit. I did talk show interviews, telethons, short news segments...and a few other things I'm sure I've forgotten.
It was loads of fun--especially since the cause was important. I'd show up, answer a few questions, flirt with the camera crew, and be on my way. I loved the challenge of thinking on my feet and was thrilled to get paid for merely talking (something I got in trouble for a lot in high school).
Today, I relived some of that joy, as I started recording my first instructional video teaching others how to make altered book journals.
The opportunity came as a surprise via an email I received from Chicago.
"Saw your books on Etsy....love your stuff! Would love to have someone teach me how to do this, but I have not been able to find anyone," the note said.
Thrilled to help, I offered to make a video of a course...which has now spilled into other things...including me becoming a producer, director, and video editor.
Who knows? Maybe this is the start of a new adventure.
